    Weight Loss Challenge

    Keep on keeping on, and I wish you all success. I tried a bottle of the veto capsules with my regular diabetic diet, and only lo\sty 2 lbs. but I aim to try again in the future. I just got discouraged, and want to be ready before I try again.

    The Violence in our Schools

    I differ with you, because when we did have prayer in our schools, the classroom teachers excused the students of different faiths or were agnostic, and told them to go to the library for about 5 minutes.

    Why did the rooster cross the road with head high? Because he was cocky.

    The Violence in our Schools

    It seems now that there is a daily killing or shooting in our schools lately. Yesterday it was at a University in South Carolina on the last day of school. It was by a student who killed two others. Oh if only these copycat shootings would stop. I realize that the school officials have a lot of problems with it, and do wish it would stop as I do. PRAYER needs to be restored in our schools, and we also need to pray for all who are affected by it. God is a good God and He does answer prayers. I also realize that the sensationalism the press creates in their reports is what attracts audiences, and is in part responsible. It is also why we need to pray for America also. Will you stand with me and commit to doing so for the sake of everyone please?

    Game of Groans

    When a person tells me she is going to run to where I ask the person to get my new prescriptions for me, I tell her I want to see her run. (tongue in cheek)

    why is no one talking about the dangers of herd mentality?

    Do you realize that this also happens in hospitals when patients are transferred to other units? The following is about my personal experience in the early 2000s. I went in atrial fibrillation and after vomited 1 1/2 liters of systemic blood, I was admitted to the medical unit in our local medical center. During my first week, the CNAs assumed that the abnormally low readings on my blood pressure readings were normal. (This is why it is extremely important and should be a mandatory rule every staff member needs to abide by.) After my not being able to sit up in bed at all, my Physician called in my Pulmonary specialist, and he said it was Pulmonary Hypertension, and I was moved to the PCU. The first morning in that unit, a cheerful CNA approached me again assuming I was able to sit up, for my personal hygienic care, but was unable to due to my systemic blood loss in the ER, I told her I would pass out if I sat up. That made her cry, and it made me feel bad. (all due to the lack of communication between units when a patient is transferred to a new one.) and due to her attempt to raise my bed in the High Fowlers position, I went into acute kidney failure. Later that day, an RN gave me a bed bath. When my Foley catheter was emptied into my graduate for fluid output measuring, the urine was completely black. Thankfully, my Physician was able to figure out why that happened to me, and I recovered.
